|Technology Complexity and Mass Minimization Approaches - Schuchman, Leonard|
In this chapter an approach is presented that for a given G/T at the Earth terminal, provides the satellite EIRP required for a given data rate in terms of minimum technology risk design, as defined in section 7.1.1. The approach starts from an initial design made according to the criterion of minimum total mass of the antenna and RF power subsystems. Using definitions of technology risk, or complexity, for both subsystems, the design is refined such that the minimum technology complexity is pro...

|Distribution and abundance of organic thiols - Fahey, R|
The role of glutathione (GSH) in protecting against the toxicity of oxygen and oxygen by products is well established for all eukaryotes studied except Entamoeba histolytica which lacks mitochrondria, chloroplasts, and microtubules. The GSH is not universal among prokaryotes. Entamoeba histolytica does not produce GSH or key enzymes of GSH metabolism. A general method of thiol analysis based upon fluorescent labeling with monobromobimane and HPLC separation of the resulting thiol derivatives was...

The development of a theoretical model is investigated of the incompressible jet injection process. The discharge of a turbulent jet into a cross flow was mathematically modeled by using an integral method which accounts for natural fluid mechanisms such as turbulence, entrainment, buoyancy, and heat transfer. The analytical results are supported by experimental data and demonstrate the usefulness of the theory for estimating the trajectory and flow properties of the jet for a variety of injecti...

A computational study was conducted to better understand experimental results obtained from wind tunnel tests of a Mach 4 waverider model and a comparative reference configuration. The experimental results showed that the performance of the reference configuration was slightly better than that of the waverider model. These results contradict waverider design theory, which suggests that a waverider optimized for maximum lift-to-drag should provide better performance than any other non-waverider c...
